Hempfield Township, PA in Urgent Need of Quality Stormwater Solutions

Hempfield Township’s main solution to the problem is maintaining about 25 storm water retention ponds scattered all around the locale to alleviate flooding and prevent sewage treatment plant overflow, especially during heavy rain. However, with an average of almost 39 inches of rain per year (U.S. average is barely 37 inches/annum) and 132 days of precipitation (32 days more than the national average), Hempfield Township residents can expect major environmental issues due to stormwater runoff if they don’t implement quality storm water solutions soon.
